Rocky Horror is coming to Glee and fans really couldn’t be more excited! This will merge two iconic musical comedies into one albeit a bit cleaned up for the PG audience of “Glee”. If you’ve been to in person versions of “Rocky” you know what I mean! Fox has cleaned up the lyrics a bit, but the spirit of the songs are still there, and for experienced Rocky freaks you’ll be singing along with the “real” words, and have your toast, rice and umbrellas in hand, right?
Having Mercedes play Dr. Frankenfurter instead of Puck or Finn is most likely one of those attempts to clean it up but I for one was really looking forward to seeing one of those dudes rock a pair of platform heels and some fishnets. Ah well, back to the parts that Gleeks are really looking forward to. Chris Colfer (Kurt) as Riff Raff the handyman leading the Glee Club in “Time Warp”. That number is going to be epic and included in the slide show are the directions for the “Time Warp” in case you’ve forgotten since the last time you danced it.
HOW TO DO THE TIME WARP
1. (It’s just a) JUMP TO THE LEFT, with hands UP.
2. A STEP TO THE RIGHT (A very WIDE step.)
3.* (With your hands on your HIPS) YOU BRING YOUR KNEES IN TIGHT.
4. (Then) THE PELVIC THRUST (if repeated FIVE times, it nearly drives you insa-a-ane)
5. HIPSWIVEL (if not driven insa-a-ane by step four)
6. LET’S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN!
On the video page you’ll find several audio’s of the songs for the Rocky Horror episode along with the TV promo that was just released and the full audio version of:
